Collapse AllGreenwich Singles - Round 26 | Thursday 10 August 2017 to Wednesday 4 October 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 6 September 2017)

Another fantastic round in the borough that is home to the Prime Meridian and where it is always "time for tennis". Thank you for your support... your commitment to friendly, competitive tennis is really appreciated and we hope you enjoyed each and every one of the over 100 matches played. Here's to the next round!

Group Summary:

And it is a hat-trick for Flavio - three group one wins in a row. Luckily for Flavio there is no three-strikes-and-you-are-out-rule so we expect him back next time to defend his crown. Both runner-up Matt and third-placed Lateef have taken sets off the champ in the past, so despite this impressive record it won't be a done deal. Well done all - some terrific tennis this round.

Group Summary:

Louis books his place back in the top group with an impressive unbroken run of wins - and a couple of bonus points in the bag. But it needed to be that good because Chris, who took his rival to a deciding set, wasn't giving up easily and tied at the top on points. The crucial head-to-head win secures Louis the group victory! Some great matches in this really competitive group.

Player Comments:

  • "The short story of the match is that Garth was very unlucky to lose (despite his polite insistence otherwise). The 1st set was fairly quick, with Garth serving well and punishing some hesistent play by Al with hard ground strokes and clever net play to see out the set with ease. Al found his serving a bit more consistently to move into a 4-2 lead in the 2nd, but Garth fought back brilliantly to tie it at 4-4 and looked to have the momentum. With a tie break seemingly inevitable and both players tiring, Al suddenly found a break point at 6-5 and took it to steal the set. The third set became a bit of a slugfest of heavy ground strokes from both. It became obvious it was going to be whoever could hold their serve first," -- Alastair

Player Comments:

  • "Excellent match defined by huge momentum swings. In the first set Chris took an early 2-0 advantage, before I pulled it back to 2-4 on my serve. But I couldn't hold and Chris soon stormed back with great net play and won the first set 6-4. Chris then continued this great form serving impeccably to take a 3-0 advantage in the 2nd set. But just as he was about to pull away I managed to claw a game back and the momentum swung back and after drawing level at 3-3 I soon took the set 6-3. With the wind in my sails I took a 5-1 lead and the end looked in sight. Chris had other ideas though as at 5-1 he held his serve in a 15 min game and then broke me to love to pull it back to 5-3 before I could cross the line. Great game - cheers Chris!"  -- Louis
Reveal CommentChris Lau bt Alastair Kidner (Sep 4) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • A rather one-sided affair over in Blackheath. On a cool, grey evening Al broke early to lead 3-1 in the first set, which seemed to indicate quite a strong match on the cards. That was as competitive as it got though. Chris found his first serve brilliantly, acing 3 times and hitting just as many unreturnable serves to reverse the momentum of the set, but as the match wore on it became more about Al's own game collapsing completely. Chris took 11 of the final 12 games to see out the match with ease, Al only managing to stop the rot briefly with a hold of serve late in the second. Well played Chris! On a side note it was great to meet Chris' parents who were over visiting for the week; they can be very pleased with their son's performance :)

Player Comments:

  • "A good quality, attacking game of tennis on a calm evening down in Hornfair Park. The result never really felt in doubt, but there were a couple of really tight games that went the way of Louis that helped confirm the final score. The first was at 2-1 to Al on Al's serve in the first set, where this one game lasted 10+ minutes before Louis forged the break and ran away with the remainder of the set, mixing up great serves and baseline play. The second mammoth game came in the 2nd, when having just broken and leading 3-2, Louis pulled out several break point saving winners to survive his serve and move to a 4-2 lead. Having being broken again Al briefly rallied to move to 3-5 down, but Louis was then clinical in the final game. Well played!"  -- Alastair
Reveal CommentAlastair Kidner bt Andrea De Baggis (Aug 19) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Played on a tricky, windy morning down in Hornfair Park this match felt like a 'what could have been' style encounter, where unfortunately Andrea was just not at his best on this occasion. The first set was affected heavily by the intermittent sun and the wind, which affected the ball toss on serves in particular. Despite Andrea fighting hard to break at the end of the set, Al had just enough from a fast start to get over the line. The second set wasn't reflected fairly by the scoreline, with the play being much closer than the score suggests. Benefitting from a couple of lucky moments and close calls, Al managed to see out the set before the weather turned. Good match Andrea and thanks for the game! "  -- Alastair

Player Comments:

  • "The match was played on a sunny but cool Summer's eve in Charlton. After the break both players were rusty and this decided the first set, with Al adjusting just a little quicker to take it 6-1. The second set was even more interesting. It went with serve to 3-2 but then Stephen broke brilliantly and stormed into a 5-3 lead. The crucial game came at this point, where at 0-40 down facing set points on his own serve Al managed to pull out his best serves of the match, hitting 2 aces and then winning the 3rd point. After that followed the game and the momentum had swung, as Al saw out the set 7-5," -- Alastair

Group Summary:

Very efficient win from newcomer James who played and won three straight-forward matches, picked up his bonus points and challenged the chasing pack to knock him off the top of the table. They couldn't and the challenges of a higher group await our champ. Well done to Jan for a gutsy second place and commiserations to third-placed Piotr (a few more matches played and who knows what might have been!).

Group Summary:

Angus made good use of his league experience and won this group despite a loss to runner-up Martin. Crucially, by playing one extra match and by earning a point for the set won in his only defeat, Angus ended the round a point ahead of his rival. It could be a case for a double-promotion... meanwhile, well done all: a terrific group! Thanks for all the commentaries.

  • "Unquestionably an amazing match. The first set felt like a match. Angus began brightly with a few aces but it soon turned into antlers-locked and a tight outcome to avoid the tie-break. Angus' left knee 'went' before the second set. As Tsvetan raced away with the match, it was pure stubbornness that kept Angus playing for the sake of a point. The hour was up, so we moved from clay to grass, playing surprisingly well for September. A mis-hit serve struck Angus in the eye and the second set was over in no time. Before Angus could settle, it was 2 games to nil to Tsvetan. Dramatic, desperate shots; endless running; absurd good luck and tight misses. A fabulous, tough, tense match right to the half-dozen deuce points in the last game!"  -- Angus

Onlookers were amazed by the exhibition of such different tennis styles despite the obvious similarity of name. The first set went Jason's way. Don couldn't get to grips with Jason's awesome and punishing flat swipe angled shot. There was no way to return that shot! Eventually Don realised he was playing the ball too short giving Jason too many opportunities to punish his sloppy ground strokes. So Don made the effort to keep the ball deep and then took sets 2 and 3. He was happy at end because Jason is very consistent and confident player."  -- Don

However, given those handicaps, it was a testing match. Both players had a similar style: stubborn inventiveness and a willingness to take advantage of the conditions. The first game, in particular, ran to about fourteen deuces... At set point down, Sam served no less than three aces to save himself. Sadly, his elbow then weakened and commonsense dictated that the match be abandoned. Looking forward to the rematch!"  -- Angus

Jason (miraculously) brought a crank for the net. He might have wished he hadn't, since a number of his frankly un-collectable shots hit the ribbon. Otherwise, the result might have been different. The momentum was tipping slowly but inexorably towards Jason as he picked up strength and accuracy - with lengthy deuce games - as the match progressed.

Group Summary:

Our thanks to Leah who not only contributed some fantastic tennis to the round, but very sportingly offered to allow Ryan and Jordan play their match after the round end. It would have been, one way or another, the group decider, but sadly it was not to be. Not that we couldn't have a more deserving winner. Well done Leah - we will watch with interest as you climb the groups!
